At any one time, only a small percentage of our artifact collection is on exhibit in our Museum’s galleries. In this program, you can open the locked door of our archive for an exclusive peek at some of the artifacts in our vast collection.
Symbols of Hate and
the Nazi Propaganda Machine
Tuesday / January 19 / 4:00 pm Pacific Time
The swastika, the Heil Hitler salute, the Nazi eagle, the SS skull and crossbones, were all symbols of hate used by the Nazis to promote their notion of a racially pure ‘Aryan’ people, while simultaneously excluding and ostracizing groups they viewed as inferior. Join our Vice President of Education & Exhibits, Jordanna Gessler, and our Collection Manager, Christie Jovanovic, as they take an in depth look at a number of these Nazi symbols, how they were either perverted or by design came to represent hate, racism, and antisemitism, as well as the carefully crafted propaganda used to push forward the radical Nazi agenda and create Hitler’s cult of personality.
